The O2 sensor provides necesary information to the computer. If the vehicle is burning too much fuel there will be insufficient O2 in the exhaust. If there is too MUCH O2 in the exhaust there is a possibility that the vehicle is not performing properly and also the possibility that you will burn valves, although your EGR valve should prevent that. Periodic replacement of your O2 sensor is just good maintenance and helps with good fuel economy.

You cannot replace just the bushings. You have to replace the whole control arm.

disconnect the sensor from the wiring harness, removed the screw holding the sensor on, remove/replace and re-secure the screw and reconnect the wires.

You don't as it does not have a cable. You replace the speed sensor instead.

My Ford 1998 Escort started slipping. It also leaks and I put tranny fluid in. If I need to replace or rebuild the transmission. How much should a total repair be?

One sensor would be for your engine temperature gauge and the other sensor for the OBD II engine management system

The speed sensor is not expensive and is easy to replace.

The sensor behind the oil filter for a 1998 Neon is a crankshaft position sensor. Unplug the wiring and remove the hold down bolt to replace it.
